It's always nice to see details of the frames. Other than what's been mentioned already, I'd like to see the chainstay bridge. I'm still trying to pin down when it changed from a round tube to a web.

As to whether the paint is original or not, it's really hard to say. Someone might have ordered white but not an anniversary model. The anniversary models had red decals, and the one on the cover of the catalog has Ben's signature where the CII decal would normally be. Yours may not have either because it's not an anniversary and the decals my have been a custom color.
My 1991 CII has a web bridge.
